Описание: The first award-winning edition of Peter Wald and Gregg Stave's Physical and Biological Hazards of the Workplace has become one of the leading references for the practice of occupational and environmental health. During the seven years since the landmark first edition appeared, there have been major revisions of government standards and guidelines for physical agents such as ergonomics, shift work, and electric power, and for biological agents such as tuberculosis and blood-borne pathogens. Now extensively updated and expanded, this book continues to be a practical "how to" reference for health and safety professionals. The text is logically organized for quick reference, with separate sections devoted to physical and biological hazards. Introductory chapters furnish an overview of each broad class of workplace hazard, followed by detailed entries describing specific causes, agents, and organisms. All recognized sources of physical hazards are discussed, including ergonomic hazards; dangers associated with shift work; extremes of temperature and atmospheric pressure; energy hazards including noise, electricity, infrared and ultraviolet light, lasers, magnetic fields, and microwave and RF exposure; and ionizing radiation. Biological agents are covered in equal depth, from the fundamentals of microbiology and infectious disease to the specific details of organic hazards like wood dust and endotoxins--plus viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, envenomations, and more. The latest research and pharmaceutical technologies and their attendant risks are considered, including recombinant organisms, prions, and malignant cells. This book is organized according to a common format that encompasses all the information health professionals require: -Occupational setting -Exposure route and measurement guidelines -Normal physiology and pathophysiology or pathobiology -Diagnosis and treatment -Medical surveillance -Control and prevention -OSHA and NIOSH standards and guidelines The contributors include many of the nation's leading authorities in occupational and environmental medicine.
